Police dog dies in car. No charges to be brought
In contrast to the Nottingham Police dog handler who has been charged in relation to the death of his Police dogs left in the back of a car, a US Alameda Police officer will not face prosecution says the Local District Attorney. This is because there is no evidence that he acted intentionally or recklessly. The local editorial THE ISLAND reports. Positive police dogs encourages a training style and philosophy that puts the dogs needs at the top of the agenda. Harbouring such a philosophy encourages handlers to be constantly, albeit eventually subconsciously, assessing the dogs welfare and state of mind. Such a mindset can only hope to reduce oversights such as this. We will keep you posted as more information becomes available.
